Need help finding replacement parts

My truck is in the shop getting the EGR delete treatment. I have procured a (FCDP) EGR Delete, blue spring upgrade, OEM Head gasket, ARP Head studs, and Oil cooler rebuild.

I am getting my FICM rebuilt, but i was recently informed I need to replace my "HPOP Oil Discharge Tubes" and my "High Pressure Oil Coupler". I cannot for the life of me find either of those parts online. If anyone can point me in the right direction Id be so very appreciative.

Give Mid TN Ford a call. The parts guys over there are tops in my book, but if ya don't want to go thru a dealer you can try Rock Auto. They have everything know to man.

Now I'm back to which after market turbo I want... I tow very little, my truck is my daily driver/ long haul ride. I dont want a remanned oem turbo just cuz it makes me sick with fear that in another 50000-100000 miles it will go out again... I have been looking pretty hard at Turbonetics torque master, BD thruster II and garrett power max. I know the turbonetics requires a tune, but im not sure if i NEED it for performance reasons or to delete the CEL. I would love feed back in this area and reasons why. Also looking at Gibson extreme duals. I won a partial sponsorship with them so... if that makes any relevant difference.

Have you read any of the post by madpowerstroke (Adrian). He is a guy on the org that is building turbo's and they are supposed to be really good. There are a couple guys from the georgia powerstroke diesel assoc. that are running his turbo's as test units. I talked to Matt (guy from the GPDA that has the Stage 2 turbo) and he is supposed to do some dyno runs on the 13th of May. Adrian's new company name is Mad Turbo Werks, I'm waiting on the #'s from Matt then gonna get a new turbo as well. Just thought I would tell you, hope it helps.

If this is for your 2004, all you need is the O-ring kit. The 2004 is different than the other models.

Over pressure fuel

Hey I'm just reviving an old thread because I hate starting new ones.

Long story short, I Have my truck back runs great. But I've noticed something strange while running my SRL+ Tune. While in Cruise Control around 70-75 while going up any kind of grade that would generally cause the truck to downshift it seems like more fuel is used to power up the hill vs downshifting to maintain speed. I wouldn't have an issue with this, however I roll coal until the truck levels out.

I talked to Matt (tune creator) about this and the best he could think is that the Blue Spring Kit I had added is over pressurizing the fuel to the injectors.

So... Is that bad? Will this kill my injectors, cause leaks or blown seals? is there a way to reduce pressure without replacing the spring?

I appreciate the retorts boys.

The only way to find out is get a Fuel Pressure Gauge

I dont THINK it is the blue spring... But If it was me I would be getting a $60 gauge vs 8 injectors @ $200 a piece

I have to disagree with Matt at gear head I'm running his srl+70 tune and I don't have the blue spring mod and my truck does the exact same thing! It is very agrevating to roll coal just to come up a hill cause the truck doesn't down shift! I'm not a fan of the way the transmission does on this tune at all! I think I'm gonna go with the SPD from TSD!
